John Wall: Opposite of Clutch

Written By Chris C-Ford ---- Thursday, March 29, 2012

The Washington Wizards kept it close with the Indiana Pacers, but John Wall once again disappeared in crunch time and the Pacers took home the win 93-89.  Wall had an offensive foul, a missed elbow jumper, and a terrible backcourt violation, all on key possessions in the final 5 minutes of a 2 point game.

Wall recently couldn't get the game tying shot off against the Pacers, then bricked a terrible game tying 3 pointer against the Hawks, then couldn't sink a game tying shot against the Pistons.  Wall is not a clutch player, and at this point in his career is not the guy you want with the ball in his hand.  I want to jump off a bridge saying this, but it has to be Jordan Crawford.

The Wizards blew another second half lead, this time only 8 points, and lost their 5th straight game, 4 out of 5 were close.

John Wall was mediocre as usual, Jordan Crawford led the scoring with lots of terrible shots, and Nene played the way he does every other game with a double double.

NOBODY was at the Pacers game.  Their record?  30-20.  Man Verizon would be so packed with that record...

Buckhantz Quote of the game:  "You know this is going up...Jordan Crawford…no he lays it off!”
